Invited by Sophie Ravier, the woman behind The Yoga Mama Club, I travelled to Sifnos to do a yoga weekend retreat for the closing of the summer season. I thought I was going there just to chill a bit from my continuous state of anxiety and get my muscles fired up again with the help of my bestie Zoe Karamani, who is an amazing Ashtanga teacher. But this was only part of the experience… The Yoga Mama Club is about rebooting and feeling inspired; it is really about Sophie Ravier’s energy & good intentions that aim to bring people together and offer a mini, rejuvenating, soul-soothing break.
I have been a great admirer of Vicky Vlachonis, an Osteopath, pain expert and author of The Body Doesn’t Lie, for many years, ever since I read one of her first wellness contributing articles on Goop! She shares her holistic healing treatments and methods all around the world with some of the world’s most notable personalities, such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Cameron Diaz, Nicole Richie, Katy Perry, Chris Martin and Elton John.
I met Anastasia Xidis last summer in Patmos; I was going through a terrible insomnia period and had tried almost everything to get over it… Martinis didn’t do the trick either!
